Ok, I have avoided doing any type of canvas for a long time. I've seen many beautiful pieces but until recently have not tried it.
This is a canvas project I created using the Cosmo Cricket Early Bird line. Isn't this perfect to hang in a kitchen? What a bright and cheery way to start your day!
Update: I've had a question about paper on canvas so I thought I'd update this thread with some info. Basically how I did this canvas was to paint it with a light coat of acrylic paint. It takes about 15-20 minutes for a light coat to dry and the more you put on the longer it takes. You could also work directly on the canvas as well. Then I used a liquid adhesive product called Zip Dry for attaching the paper to the canvas. Other than that, I treated this project just like a scrapbook page! I'm sure there are more techniques on the internet for canvas, but I have not done any searching since I decided to start out simple!
So leave me a comment and let me know if you have worked with canvas! And if you are up to sharing your canvas design with everyone make sure you leave a link in the comments section! I would love to be inspired by others who have more canvas experience than I do!
